In the Family-oriented Abstraction, Specification and Translation (FAST) domain engineering process for software production, a member of a software product family is automatically generated from a model expressed in a DSL. In practice, the time and skill needed to make the DSLs proved to be bottlenecks. FAST now relies on jargons, a kind of easy-to-make DSL(More)
This paper describes the experiences of a small team of domain experts in re-engineering the configuration control software for the 5ESS® switch. The project consisted of three main phases: discovery, design, and deployment. During the discovery phase the team conducted a domain analysis of configuration control software. In the design phase the team(More)
I n this issue you will find two practical papers that should interest members of the EMC community. The first is entitled, " Comparison of Frequency Domain and Time Domain Measurement Procedures for Ultra Wideband Antennas, " by W. Sörgel, F. Pivit, and W. Wiesbeck. In this paper, the authors discuss the issue of characterizing antennas for ultra wideband(More)
The use of the electric power transmission and distribution system as a transmission medium for broadband communications is considered. It is found that there are three significant technical hurdles to be overcome before successful implementation of such systems can be accomplished. The first is the relatively high attenuation rate due to discontinuities(More)
Conclusions of epidemiological studies describing adverse health effects as a result of exposure to electromagnetic fields are not unanimous and often contradictory. It has been proposed that an explanation could be that high-frequency voltage transients [dirty electricity (DE)] which are superimposed on 50/60-Hz fields, but are generally not measured, are(More)
To date, there has not been a completely satisfactory comparison between theory and experiment for a ground system that is excited by a current with a submicrosecond rise time. This requires careful definitions of both the measured and calculated voltages because the electric field is no longer conservative and voltages become path dependent. An experiment(More)
The members of the Committee appointed to examine the thesis of JACOB ROWLAND BURNHAM find it satisfactory and recommend that it be accepted. for their generous contributions to this project. I extend my thanks to everyone that has provided me with guidance and helped progress my efforts. I thank my advisor, Shane Brown, for his insight and patience, with(More)
